The Charlotte IOCC Metropolitan Committee
10th Annual IOCC Dinner and Cultural Event Program
October 13, 2011
The Fall IOCC Event in Charlotte was alive with many caring people. It was held in the fellowship hall of the beautiful St. Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Church with a couple of hundred people present. The untiring Roberta and Raymond Bazoian with Lena Neau led their friends in preparing great food and decorating their church hall so delightfully. There was a cultural food exchange from all the various participants – the three Greek parishes, the Coptic, the Armenian, the Serbian and the Eritrean parishes of Charlotte. We listened to the Cherubic Coptic Choir and joyful Armenian dancers. Speaker Mark Ohanian spoke to the wonderful work of IOCC and showed a brief video highlighting the steps to alleviate hunger in the Horn of Africa.
